The treasonous and seditious tentacles of the Trump administration continue to grow and spread as Trump's indicted and pardoned former national security adviser Michael Flynn has been caught on video saying that a coup like what happened in Myanmar should happen in the United States. Flynn made the comments at a QAnon conference officially called the "For God & Country Patriot Roundup" in Dallas, Texas. An audience member who claimed to be a Marine asked Flynn if what happened in Myanmar could happened in the US and Flynn said that it could. The reference was to a coup that began on the morning of February 1, 2021 in Myanmar when democratically-elected officials of the country's ruling party, the National League for Democracy, were deposed by the Tatmadaw—Myanmar's military. The country's military executed a morning raid, detaining elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other political figures. The military defended its actions as necessary in light of voter fraud allegations in the country’s November election.
The audience member’s exact question was, “I want to know why what happened in Myanmar can’t happen here.” Flynn responded “no reason, I mean it should happen here.” This prompted the audience to erupt in applause. There is a real question as to if Flynn’s comments were actually promoting violence or if they were simply unhinged but not malicious. It would be highly inappropriate and perhaps even illegal for a retied Army lieutenant general and former national security adviser to making comments supporting an overthrow of the United States government. But it’s even crazier to think that so many people on the right believe him. There are still people in America to this day, many Q followers but not all, who believe that five months into his presidency, Joe Biden will be deposed and Donald Trump will return to power.
